Louis Imbroto | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Louis Imbroto is running for Oyster Bay town council member

Louis Imbroto

Imbroto said he wants to restore public trust in government, lower property taxes, make government easier to access and revitalize downtowns. He said the town should repeat the open and public procurement process it used to select new concessionaires earlier this year “as often as possible.” Though in some cases the law requires sealed bids, he said, for “any issue that’s up to the discretion of the board, I believe we should be doing out in the open.” Imbroto said the town needs to aggressively pay off its debt and get its bond rating back up. “As long as we’re borrowing less money than we’re paying off the debt is going to go down,” Imbroto said. He said the town is in the process of identifying which roads need work immediately, and funding for road repairs should increase “as soon as our town is back on the right financial track.” The town should continue to fight against a federal lawsuit that alleged a senior housing program was discriminatory against minorities because it gave preference to Oyster Bay residents, he said.

Imbroto, 33, of Plainview, is running on the Republican, Conservative, Reform and Tax Revolt party lines. He was appointed to the town board in March to fill a vacancy. He received an undergraduate degree from Fordham University and a law degree from Brooklyn Law School. He previously worked as assistant general counsel at NuHealth, which includes Nassau University Medical Center, and as an assistant town attorney in Oyster Bay. He also worked as an associate attorney for the Garden City firm of Berkman, Henoch, Peterson, Peddy & Fenchel P.C. and as a manager of policy and government relations and in-house counsel for the Long Island Contractors Association. He is single.
